Lagoons and Lakes

There are various lakes and lagoons throughout the catchment.

    1. Lagoons, which are tidal, include Aotea Lagoon, the Papakowhai Lagoons and Okowai lagoons. They have all been formed as a result of the motorway changes in the 1960’s and or subdivision work, they collect water from Aotea, Papakowhai and Paremata areas. 
    2. The lakes, which are fresh water, include Whitby Lake, the lake in the NZ Police College grounds, Okowai Lake and a small lake in Aotea Lagoon.
